we set out to do. because of you, osama bin laden is no more. [applause] because of you, al qaeda's top ranks have been hammered. the core of al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan is on the way to defeat. >> president obama with the marines this week. osama bin laden is gone, but his number two man is still around, and so is his personal assistant, who has planned an attack on american targets, leading to the closing of 19 embassies and the state department has ordered nonessential staff to leave the u.s. consulate and issued a travel warning. colby, the game is not over. >> the game is not over and it raises questions about the information that led to the decision and how we got it. it goes back to the mega-data that has been gathered. does it suggest there is value in what they have done? the activity that we have been reading about -- there is fruit from it that allows them to take the action they have taken? the threat has not gone away. >> how about this -- we do not want another benghazi? is that the message? >> it is clear part of the motivation was because of benghazi, the
can do this. this is more complicated, much more so than going after osama bin laden. and justifiably so carry out these spectacular successful operations. in the case of algeria there was one device. we're talking about a nuclear arsenal of about 100 devices and different places plus weapons productions facilities in this really gets complicated. the notion we will be operating is also nonsense in it. so these are long shots desperate at the end. if they are that desperate at the end, that brings back a powerful argument for nonproliferation efforts. if you can't solve the problem that might occur, you probably want to do everything you can to prevent people from going down the path. but what's interesting is that sometimes i think we exaggerate the threat of nuclear terrorism and make claims that some of the states will readily provide nuclear weapons to terrorists. which i think is less likely. i just cannot see this as a likely scenario. but it's used as an argument against proliferation. because they will give it to terrorists and they have looked at the history of terrorism. we
. unfortunately what we have learned from al-qaeda and osama bin laden taken out, once you remove a top leader, this is decentral i'd network. >> heather: i was going to talk to you about, but sticking with the drone attacks. 15 of the attackers, 9 were saudis on 9/11 and seven were killed in that strike. you touched on this briefly. what role or saudi nationals playing in the latest terror threat? >> there have been long term problems of islamist activism. people would know osama bin laden originated out of saudi arabia base. it's not a surprise there would be activists and terrorists that would come out of that area but there has been active training in yemen and saudi side of the border for a long time just like the afghanistan-pakistan border. so the flow is troubling. we would like to believe the kingdom of saudi arabia would be an active partner in identifying and stopping that just as much as the government of yemen wants to. >> heather: so the u.s. navy adding to the planes to the hundreds of millions of dollars of aid we've given yemen. is that the best to stop al-qaeda there? >> i th
osama bin laden to the others, before they joined and formed al qaeda. guess which group they belong to a? the muslim brotherhood. ladies and gentlemen, i'm here to tell you that the muslim brotherhood is the gateway drug to islamic terrorism. if you want to understand this mayhem and why we are up against against the wall with the war on terror come along strangle him the existential struggle to judeo-christian, i'm sitting in the capital they do not like like to hear that into this at a premium. but that is what is going on. if you want to understand what we're up against, you have to understand this group. it started with them. it looked to be very politically incorrect and i have plenty of theological emma to back up their ideology matters of fact. so the founder is crestfallen and deflated that the group has collapsed. the caliphate. picture every muslim nation economically, politically, militarily, speaking with one strong voice against israel and america. controlling a good supply of the world's oil and perhaps if things keep regressing or regress in the way that they have bee
on terror continues whether osama bin wanted is dead does not mean alaeda is dead be cleared out 20 embassies around the world to move this tax out by the way we cannot say evacuate. it was the ordey departure th know what is going on and they are getting troubled by the fact that the lexicon has reached every part of the administration whether iras iras, defense department, war on terror, they will call it their own dictionary sll believe we should move the white house to california since we hear national security on jay leno give me a break hcannot talk to the press corps but he ss down with jay leno? lou: that the term radical islamist should not be used or the war on terror or the overseas contingency operation. thlist goes on and on and to talk with jay leno i am sure you both notice he did as a radical islamist but violent radical extremist and vient extremist and did not even refer to a terrorist or radical is law because frankly this administration does not have the intellectuals or individual courage to speak graham -- played the to the american people to t enemies are and
don't know. as much as we think we know, the fact that osama bin laden is dead, terrific, that broke up core al qaeda. but no one capable of 9-11, that's a dangerous road to go down and say that publicly. they are still very fearful someone is going to get a body bomb on an airplane or another printer cartridge that will actually work to bring down an airplane. and frankly, who knows what other plots are out there? i don't mean to sound doom and gloom but i don't think we know what we don't know. even though our intelligence is pretty terrific. gwen: and international surveillance. we're not going to give that up -- >> and we had al-zarqawi who is bin laden's number two guy and number one guy in core al qaeda if you want to call it that, communicating with the head of al qaeda on the arabian peninsula. that tells you something, too. gwen: was there any sense at the white house, alexis, that part of what drove this was in the way that edward snowden drove the announcements about surveillance today that the -- the fallout from benghazi may have driven some of his decision to shut down
responsible for attacks. we did not get osama bin laden by having -- >> let nicole -- 30 seconds. go ahead. >> you know what? he goofed on benghazi. the whole administration has been putting this under the rug. they don't know, their whatever from a hole in the ground and i'm tired of seeing what this administration has done with benghazi. it is insulting. >> noel, leslie, and i got your name right there. still ahead, tonight on this special edition of has nnnity, sean's interview. first, a government watch dog investigation into planned parenthood. i'll explain why the nation's largest abortion provider is being accused of wasting your hard earned tax dollars also. >>> we need your help in pick the video of the day. option one tonight. the hilarious video. you see it. of a drunk dancer and what happens when he is put to the sobriety test. if you want to see his moves, if you want to see his moves, logon and cast your vote. a-a-a. f-f-f-f-f-f-f. lac-lac-lac. he's an actor who's known for his voice. but his accident took that away. thankfully, he's got aflac. they're gonna give him cash to
was in office, that authority generally worked against core al qaeda, osama bin laden being the most prominent example. other members of core al qaeda. al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, and al qaeda- affiliated elements. >> there were three associated forces when you're in office. >> those were the three that i had the occasion to evaluate most often. there were other instances where i would conduct a legal evaluation where we did not go forward with a specific operation, but those are the three most prominent examples that we regularly briefed to congress. you referred to my oxford speech. i think we are at an inflection point, as one journalist put it, where we should no longer consider ourselves in a traditional armed conflict against al qaeda and affiliated groups. i think benghazi is a prominent example of what i am talking about. you cannot label the benghazi attack as something conducted by al qaeda and associated forces. it was more of a mixed bag. in this period, i think we need to evaluate in congress what new authorities we might need -- and we're not just talking about drone strik
